CACI Awarded Estimated $15 Million Blanket Purchase Agreement to Provide Acquisition and Logistics Support to U.S. Marine Corps
Arlington, Va., October 8, 2002 — CACI International Inc (NYSE:CAI) announced today that Automated Sciences Group, Inc., a subsidiary of CACI International Inc, has been awarded a five-year, estimated $15 million blanket purchase order agreement (BPA) to support the United States Marine Corps Systems Command (MCSC), Commercial Enterprise Omnibus support services (CEOss) program. CEOss spans four areas of performance, and CACI has been issued a BPA to compete for tasks in the Acquisition, Logistics and Administrative (ALA) domain. The award gives CACI an opportunity to significantly increase its business with the Marine Corps and further strengthen the company's engineering and logistics line of business.
MCSC is responsible for equipping U.S. Marine Corps forces on warfighting missions, providing complete life-cycle management of systems and supplies. Competing in the ALA domain enables CACI to help the Marine Corps acquire and support weapon systems, tactical vehicles, combat engineering equipment, and nuclear/chemical/biological threat response assets and supplies, as well as assist in the full spectrum of combat and services support.
Drawing on its over 40 years of experience in DoD logistics support, engineering, and related technologies, CACI provides established tools and defined processes that can be immediately applied to Marine Corps requirements. The company offers proven formulas for operational readiness, such as its Readiness Based Sparing and asset tracking techniques, which optimize acquisition support and predict supply needs. With its legacy of developing and supporting standard DoD configuration management tools, CACI also offers demonstrated expertise in cost-effective approaches that give all users of a system fast and easy access to the data necessary for sound decisions in life-cycle support. In addition, with decades of experience supporting the logistics needs of Marine Corps aviation units, CACI brings a significant functional familiarity with the Marine Corps environment.
According to Ken Johnson, CACI President of U.S. Operations, "The CEOss program gives CACI an outstanding vehicle for leveraging our proven acquisition and logistics expertise into solutions that will save the United States Marine Corps substantial time and dollars. We will be able to immediately apply established techniques that improve overall systems acquisition and maintenance while supporting the full range of combat operational requirements."
CACI Chairman and CEO, Dr. J.P.(Jack) London, stated "CACI's agreement with the United States Marine Corps continues our support of defense initiatives that maximize resources while enhancing homeland security and the worldwide missions of our military. CACI's proven solutions have helped our Defense customers achieve both cost savings and immediate operational improvements and effectiveness in their warfighting capabilities."
